I've decided I need to write off the next week...or two.
As I said before, my mother is moving, buying a new house and all that. While she waits for her new home purchase to go through, she's staying at her boyfriend's house. Meanwhile, my little brother, who lives with her is staying with me, because he doesn't get along with her boyfriend.
I love my little brother, but he sort of sprung his visit on me in a way that gave me no real options. I had to take him in. My house is not all that big. So, it was tricky making space for him. The worst part is that he dropped out of college, has no job, and almost never goes out. So, he sits on my couch...with his dog...who isn't potty trained.
I feel positively besieged. Between his Olympic couch surfing and my mother's now regular surprise visits to my home, I am a complete mess.
This ordeal is supposed to be over on July 1st, when they take possession of their new home. I keep telling myself that I can suffer through for a few more days, but my Sparking has come to a grinding halt...and I don't see it coming back until my home is peaceful again.
Add on to all this that my husband is increasingly gruff about everything...and I want nothing more than to take a nice, long vacation...just me and my dog.
Here's to July 1st, Sparkers. Wish me good luck and gawd's speed.
